Due to the many requests from our clients regarding the power consumption of the Irdroid v2.0 modules, we have performed a number of laboratory tests , measuring the power consumption of the Irdroid v2.0 module. The Irdroid v2.0 modules are shipped with a standard DC 12V power adapter with 2.1 mm power jack. The adapters are rated 1A, 12V. The Power consumption of the module is significantly less than 1A. We have performed a energy measurement tests with our smart power meter and using it’s information system for measuring the power consumption of the module under remote control conditions as well as under continuous music via Bluetooth A2DP and below you can find the measurement results.
The power consumption of the Irdoid v2.0:
the module consumes 0,8W from the mains power when used as a remote control for Android and a variable consumption in the range of 1,0W to 2,4W when used as a remote audio interface for Android. The peak consumption from the +12V power is about 0,2A.
